10:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
DOCTORS surgeries across Tendring will be closed this afternoon.
GPs, practice nurses and practice managers across the district will be attending the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group’s half-day professional education session.
Between 12noon and 6.30pm services will be taken over by out-of-hours provider Harmoni.
Health bosses said the half-day closure is to allow professional development and education on developments in the local health system for staff at the practices, so that they can stay up to date with the latest treatments and service improvements and other issues.
Patients with urgent issues that cannot wait till the next morning should call Harmoni, on 0845 602 5215.
